Well, James, I didn't find a thing in my Belmont resources, but I didn't expect to, as he/family weren't there very long.Are you the person who posted on findagrave?James headstone was erected 1902 for CW vets by the VT Marble Co. 8-29-1838/1-28-1901
I did find his middle name. The marriages for Clarence, Bessie, Gertrude are on familysearch.org.One of the girls states her father is James Duncan MC DONALD.
10-29-1861 James MC DONALD m. Matilda E HASKET, Morgan Co IN
Do you have James' CW pension file?They usually have pretty good intel.
